Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Current world changes have led to the re-emergence of many foodborne pathogens. The globalization of food markets, for example, has increased the challenge to manage the microbial risks. This Special Issue will contribute to identify potential innovative approaches for the development of new microbiologically safe foods and provide the basic principles of food toxicology, food processing, food safety as well as hygiene of retail and household food handling to prevent food borne illness outbreaks. Despite advances in hygiene, food treatment, and food processing, diseases caused by foodborne pathogens continue to constitute a worldwide public health concern Ensuring food safety to protect public health remains a significant challenge in both developing and developed nations. “Food Hygiene and Human Health” accepts papers concerning food safety risks and assurance of a safe food system.
